SchoolJam: Students rock the hurricane | – News – Lower Saxony

As of: 01/21/2020 07:12 p.m.

Lower Saxony 6pm

In 2019 a band from Schwerin won the SchoolJam: the Highheel Sneakers.

The dream of every school band: be discovered, make it big, play at famous festivals thousands, maybe tens of thousands ago. For a band this is at least partially true: At Hurricane Festival the young musicians will be part of the line-up. There is still a fair hurdle to be overcome: If you want to play as a school band at the Hurricane, you have to SchoolJam win. On Tuesday evening one of the regiofinals in Hanover will take place.

SchoolJam is the largest youth festival for young bands in Germany. Bands from the 5th class can participate – more than 1,200 applications have been received, according to the organizer.

Places one and two come on

The aim in the regional finals is to be chosen among the top two. Because they qualify for the subsequent online voting. That should start at the end of February across Germany. The winners of the Regiofinale are selected by the four-person “SchoolJam-Crew”, as Gerald Dellmann from SchoolJam explains: “The crew consists of members of the band Aber Hallo, who won the final three years ago, as well as professional backliners and musicians.” With two bands from each Regiofinale, a total of 18 are voting on the Internet. After the voting, eight bands remain – it remains exciting.

Grand finale – and then the hurricane

The next and last round is on April 4th: the grand finale. The eight bands present themselves at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt am Main. The jury there consists of members of well-known bands, as Dellmann announces. After that, the best troupe is determined, the young band that wins the SchoolJam 2020. And for them it really gets going: She receives a two-day live coaching, a studio weekend at the Abbey Road Institute – note: in Frankfurt – as well as the mentioned appearance on the Hurricane in Scheeßel and its sister festival Southside in Neuhausen ob Eck (Baden -Wuerttemberg).
